“Saraya!” I called for her and she came walking out the kitchen.
“What?” She asked with an attitude.
“You still mad?”
“What you want Breezy?”
“Oh I’m Breezy now?”
“Yes so what you want?” I grabbed her arm and pulled her into my chest.
“Stop being mad Angel.”
“Don’t call me that. Move.” She snatched out of my grip and went upstairs. A couple of seconds later I heard her door slam. I just shook my head and walked to the kitchen.
“What you do to her?” Aunt Jackie asked. Right when I was about to answer I heard my front door slam.
“Cass stop acting like that.” I head Ty yell.
“Fuck you!” I heard Cassie yell then I heard a door slam again. Ty came walking in the kitchen shaking his head.
“Okay both of you in the dog house. What you do?” She asked and we both sighed.
“We aint letting them go to prom.” I answered her and she sucked her teeth.
“And why not?”
“Fuck they need to go for? We aint gon be there so there is no need for them to go.”
“They have to go where you approve? No, prom is the one thing I high school girl looks forward to and you jackasses are taking it away. That’s fucked up. I guess you gon be having blue balls for a good minute.” She said laughing and walked out.
“They overreacting.” Ty said and I laughed.
“I know she don’t even talk to nobody in that bitch so why she want to spend mad money to be around muthafuckas she don’t even like is confusing as fuck to me.”
“I know, so we really have to go the fuck in for their graduation.”
“I know, this about to be some bills.”
“I rather that then have a dry dick.”
“Well I aint in that boat.”
“How you figure that? I know she aint fucking you while she mad. And you aint dumb enough to fuck with one of them bitches. She will fuck you and them up.” He said and I laughed.
“I know. Yeah never mind that shit.” I said laughing.
“Let’s take them to New York.” He said randomly and I thought about it.
“I don’t know. Throw them a black card and they’ll go crazy.” He said and I nodded.
“You got a point. Aight we headed to NY.”
“I don’t know. More than likely. You know you can’t split the fucking three musketeers up.”
“True, but yeah they gon be up there for a minute.”
“Yeah bashing us and shit.” We both laughed and I shrugged my shoulders. That shit aint new. That’s some female shit.
“He gets on my damn nerves. Fucking egg roll looking fucktard.” Cassie yelled and I laughed.
“Trust me I know. How he gon take my prom away? Like seriously. I barely ask him for shit and this one thing that I want really bad he gon say no.” I shook my head and lay down across my bed. It was complete bullshit that me and Cass couldn’t go to our prom just because they wasn’t gon be there to ‘watch us’ aka, make sure nobody tries to fuck us.
“I know what dress I wanted and everything. Had my hair style planned? But no these niggas want to be dick heads about the situation. Fuck that, he about to buy me something.” She got off my bed and I laughed again. “Come on you coming with me. I don’t give a fuck what Chris has to say. Let’s go.”
I laughed while I put my sneakers on. I grabbed my ray bans off my dresser and walked out with her heading downstairs. I put my shades over my face and walked with her in the kitchen where these niggas were laughing and chowing down like it was the last supper.
“Oh y’all not mad no more?” Ty asked and Cassie held up her middle finger then her palm. “Why you got your hand out?”
“Black card, like now.” He sucked his teeth and went in his pocket. “Chris she coming with me. I don’t want to hear shit but she coming. Give her some money.” Cassie said and he raised his eyebrow.
“I aint yo man you can’t tell me what to do. And if she want something from me she can open her mouth and say it. Or she can stand there and continue to act like a bitch.” He said and I took my ray bans off my face.
“What you just call me?”
“Aww shit.” I heard Ty mumble.
“I said you gon stand there and keep acting like a bitch.”
“You know what. I’m not even gon go off on you just because you think you slick.”
“The fuck are you talking about?”
“You know what I’m talking about. You want me to go off on you, piss you off. So your crazy ass can switch up and turn into muthafuckin Maurice and try to mind trick me into fucking you. It aint gon happen today.” He raised his eyebrow again and I chuckled. “Yeah nigga I know your game. You aint slick. Cass let’s just go. I don’t need no money from his ass.”
“So what you gon do? Stand around looking like a fucking dummy when she buying shit.”
“The fuck makes you think I’m broke? Just because my mother was a damn fiend don’t mean shit. I was working nigga. I aint no lazy bitch so yeah I got some bread put away. I don’t need shit from your dumb ass.”
“Watch your fucking mouth.”
“I aint watching shit. Cass can we go?”
“You aint going nowhere.” He spat and I looked at him like he was dumb.
“Watch me.” I walked off only for him to snatch me back. I turned around and saw those grey eyes. Here his crazy ass go.
“Stop fucking playing with me.”
“Aint nobody playing with you. Get off me.” I yelled and he slammed me up against the wall.
“You trying to get fucked up?”
“No I’m trying to get your crazy ass out my face. Move nigga damn.” I pushed him and he slapped me.
“Maurice!” I heard Cassie yell.
“Fuck that she gon stop playing with me.” I touched my face and looked at him. I ran up to him and punched him straight in his face. He grabbed me and we both landed on the floor. I was swinging and hitting him all in his face. He was about to hit me back but I got snatched out of his reach. He got up and tried to run up but Ty pushed him back.
“Nigga chill!” He pushed him all the way out of the room and I heard crying on the side of me. I looked and Nyla was standing there. I sighed and bent down.
“Ny stop crying.”
“He hit you Ray, Ray.” She said crying. I picked her up and went in the living room with Cassie next to me. I sat on the couch and wiped her tears.
“Look at me Ny.” She looked at me and I smiled.
“Do you see me crying?”
“Do you see me upset?”
“So what does that tell you?”
“He didn’t break you.”
“Exactly. I’m fine okay. Stop crying.” I kissed her cheek and she nodded.
“Okay, I don’t like him though.”
“No, Nyla. Just because he was being a jerk for a minute doesn’t mean anything okay. He was not himself.”
“What do you mean?”
“Remember I told you when some people get angry they act like a different person?”
“Like the hulk?”
“Exactly, he was not himself. Don’t be mad at Uncle Chris okay.”
“I’ll think about it. You got him good though.” She said laughing.
“I know.” I let her down and she ran out the room.
“Lil mama!…Nyla!” I heard him yelling. She must have been ignoring him. “Damn man.”
“You good?” Cassie asked and I nodded.
“Yeah I’m fine.” I got up and she laughed.
“You punched him hard as shit.”
“That’s what he gets. Come on.” We walked out the room and I was close to the door when I felt my hand being grabbed.
“Wait Ray, let me talk to you.” I turned and his eyes were back to brown. “Look I’m sorry. You know I wouldn’t have done that if…”
“If you were in your right mind? Yeah I know. But let me tell you something.” I grabbed his face and made him look at me in my eyes. “I am not Bianca, or Alicia got me? You aint gon treat me how you treat them. If I mean as much to you as you say I do? Then you need to get Maurice and his fucking actions under control. And if you ever put your fucking hands on me like that again I will cut your dick off and feed it to you. Play with me if you want to.”
“Aight, don’t threaten my manhood though ma.” He said laughing. I let his face go and turned around but he grabbed my hand again. When I turned around he put his black card in my hand. “Get what you want.” He kissed me on the lips and I nodded.
“Go talk to Nyla she aint too happy with you right now?”
“Obviously, she just igged me when I called her. What happened?” He asked. Of course Maurice aint notice her.
“She saw you slap me.” I said and his jaw clenched.
“Fuck!” He yelled and I shook my head. “Calm down and go talk to her. I’m still mad at you about my prom too nigga. I aint forget shit.” I said walking out the door with Cassie.
“Hey at least you got the card.” She said and I laughed.
“I guess so. He needs to control that shit though.” We got into Ty’s car and she pulled off. That’s the side of Maurice I can’t fucking stand. He needs to get that shit straight.
